These all-star students will keep playing at university.

Freddy Avis (Stanford baseball) -- The right-handed pitcher was drafted in the 25th round of Major League Baseball's first-year player draft. Avis was the starting pitcher in Menlo's CCS Div. III championships in 2010 and 2011.

(Davidson College baseball) -- Batchelder finished the season with a lofty 10-4 mark and held a 2.20 ER. The left-handed pitcher was just as effective at the plate: He batted .427 with 31 RBI and had 10 doubles, and held a slugging percentage of .646.

(Dartmouth tennis) -- Chan was a starter on Menlo teams that have netted four consecutive CCS championships, four NorCal titles and two national championships. He ranked as high as No. 1 in Northern California and No. 31 in the country in the 16-and-under age division.

Connor Dillon (George Washington water polo) -- Dillon was the 2011 All-Peninsula Athletic League (PAL) Bay Division Goalie of the Year and earned Second-Team All-CCS Division II honors as a senior. The Los Gatos, Calif.-native led Menlo to a 79-32 combined four-year record and four straight PAL titles.
